“Just Patty” is a 1911 novel by American writer Jean Webster. Her sixth novel, it is a prequel to “When Patty Went to College” (1903) which chronicles the early years of the life of Patty Wyatt, an outgoing, lively girl with a distinctly individual character. “Jean Webster” is the pseudonym of Alice Jane Chandler Webster (1876 – 1916), an American writer who authored many well-known books including “Daddy-Long-Legs” and “Dear Enemy”. Her most famous works are often characterised by powerful, likeable young female main characters who experience a maturation and intellectual coming-of-age morally and socially. Including witty humour, snappy dialogue, and social commentary, her works are still read and enjoyed by readers today the world over. “Just Patty” constitutes a must-read for those who have read other books in the series, and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Webster’s wonderful work. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
